Reason #6: Yoga Improves Brain Health

Each time we practice yoga we take a moment at the start and end to sit, be calm, and allow our minds to focus on our breathing and be in the present moment.  Did you know this simple act of meditation is helping you build a healthier brain?

Various studies have shown a link between meditation and brain health. Specifically, meditation has been shown to reduce age-related decline in a multitude of areas including memory, concentration, and information processing.  Parts of the brain, including the cerebral cortex, have been shown to physically change with consistent practice, with changes beginning to take place in as little as 8 weeks.  Read more here about why your brain loves yoga.
